Living in Canada dry skin is a reality. Shea butter has always been known to have moisturizing and nourishing properties and while I love using Shea Butter creams on my body, I always thought it would be too heavy to use on my face. L’Occitane has added a new Ultra Gentle Moisturizer with 8% Shea Butter to their famous collection. The light and fluid texture makes it ideal for daily use, protecting and moisturizing skin without feeling greasy.
GS Approved: In the early 1980’s L’Occitane launched a sustainable joint-development program with the women of Burkina Faso with Shea Butter paving the way for their economic emancipation. They started with 10 women and today there are over 12,000 women producing the precious Shea Butter for L’Occitane.
Inspiration: It’s hard to stay chic and stylish in the winter months when we’re all bundled up. I’m glad that at least my skin will look its best but I still wish I could sport a glamorous parka like this one by Isaac Mizrahi.
